It works with ?WRKOBJ, but not with WRKOBJ F4.
And it only fails under one of my user profiles, one set up for a test
environment, with no authority to production libraries. It does have
*USE authority to library QSYS.

Issue DSPLIBL on each of those sessions, each user profile, to see if
one user profile might have an initial program that adds a library
ahead of QSYS, as that can affect commands.
Also, you can try typing "QSYS/WRKOBJ" and then press F4 and see if it

Good point Mark. I tried it with IBM's 5250 emulator and it worked
fine. I tried TN5250J again, and it works with one user profile, but
not with another. The one that works has *SECOFR authority. Which is
probably a red herring, because I tried both profiles with IBM's
emulator and it worked fine for both.
Not sure if that rules out an exit point, which could theoretically
disallow prompting based on user profile and device.

Did you try to reproduce the problem using a different emulator?
Try with IBM's Client Access, or the "open source" TN5250 emulator,
or some other 5250 emulator.
Also, ensure you do not have some kind of keyboard macro defined
that may be changing the behavior of F4 to erase input and then

I've tried it with two different profiles, and it really seems hit

today, it has worked flawlessly.
Anyone seen anything like this?
